    Default Re: Extinguishing fire with sound

    I don't think the Idea of a Militia is realistic in the modern age, that was addressed to a small degree on the video I linked as well.
    As you say, aircraft carriers, atomic bombs, etc, not to mention tanks, fighter jets, and whatever other military hardware you care to name.

    Take the formation of a militia out of the equation and there is no justification for public ownership of military grade hardware that you will convince me of.
    Carry a gun so bears don't eat you, sure that's perfectly reasonable. Buy a tank so you can fight the government when the revolution comes? not so much.
    Own an assault rifle for home "protection" ? nah I don't buy that at all.

    .... and there's a problem here.....

    "Assault Rifle" is such a Hollywood-esque term. Actually these are just very military-looking 22 and 223 rifles that are much more innocuous looking when you see what they look like in civilian usage:

    These are pretty much the same caliber, although lever-actioned. There are however, many semi-automatic .22 and .223 rifles that I'll post them if you like - and these are identical to the 'Assault weapon" in fire power.


    May your screen door of life not swing in the winds of bad choices


    I have no idea what that means - I just think it sounds erudite, that's all.
